A Brand New Series From Lee Hayton and Paul C. Middleton


Talk about knocking me down with a frickin’ feather.

My name is Lou Lind and from the moment I stepped into Areanna and Lindsay Thea’s living room, the stink of an unsolveable crime was hanging in the air. A smash and grab raid had prised their young son from his bedroom, and despite the shattered glass, the couple swore they’d slept through the whole thing.

Fair enough. You can’t cure stupid.

But when I saw, plain as day, that Areanna was lying through her teeth, I knew I’d need to tackle her alone to sort out the cause of her son’s kidnapping. And if following up this lead presents a challenge to my entire sense of reality? Well, so be it. The good peeps of NZ don’t pay me a pittance just to keep my sanity buffed up to a nice shine.

If you enjoy mysteries steeped in Urban Fantasy, you’ll love the first joint venture in the Face the Music series from Lee Hayton and Paul C. Middleton.



Every bullet has your name on it.


Seven customers shot dead in a coffee shop. Thirty shoppers cut down by an assault rifle at the mall. One hundred and eight pupils killed by high-school students on a rampage.

It’s just reached 10:00 a.m. on a beautiful spring day.

When a neurological virus triggers an epidemic of gun violence, a modern US city fractures into chaos. Annie’s husband shoots at commuters while his son is buckled in a carseat. Frankie and Becca desperately try to hide from a deranged shooter at their school; Robert runs headlong into the midst of a lopsided gun battle; and Blain…? None of them know Blain’s true story.

Thrown together—their families dead or missing—these survivors struggle to escape the newly-dangerous city. Hoping to find a place of safety. Somewhere they can bide their time until the violence subsides, the authorities seize control, and good once again triumphs over evil.

They’re in for a long wait.

One o’clock in the morning, a full ER. Two o’clock in the morning, a full hospital. Three o’clock in the morning, police barricade the street outside to prevent patients from overrunning the facilities.

Welcome to the day before the apocalypse.

When Dr. Rachel Harraday is called upon by the CDC to catalog and treat a fast-developing epidemic, she thinks her worst problem will be overcoming her agoraphobic panic long enough to travel to the assigned hospital.

On arrival, she’s subsumed by an avalanche of patients displaying signs of infection from the uncharted disease. As time passes, each new symptom triggers with clockwork precision—counting down toward an unthinkable final-stage.

As the disease catapults its sufferers into a spree of gun violence, Rachel struggles to navigate to safety through the unfamiliar hospital. Every life-or-death decision she makes, weighed down by her responsibility for each hand-picked patient and staff member.

The one thing they can all count on—help isn’t on its way.
